Those Places Thursday: Veterans Memorial Green, Middletown

  I've driven by the Veterans Memorial Green for years and had always wondered about its history. I knew it contained war memorials, but I knew little else. According to the City of Middletown's website, the park is 4.1 acres, containing memorials to veterans of every war. A 1985 historic register nomination is a little more explicit: the eastern park monument was to veterans of the Civil War; the western to the veterans of the first World War.The 1904 Civil War memorial is described in detail on the Connecticut Historical Society site.
   Now if I could only manage to take photos... There are a few on Flickr, in the meantime.
